Exclamation MS Outlook 2002 & VB.NET


I am trying to develop a web page that would create a MS Outlook Journal Entry & a MS Outlook Task Request via VB.NET based on a few fields on the page. The page would then email the Journal Entry & Task Request. I know how to create the form, pass the variable back to the code-behind, & create & send an email. As far as creating the Journal Entry & Task request - I have no clue. Any & all help would be appreciated!

Kevin,

Your request crosses so many disciplines that I think you will have better luck posting your Q again in one of two other locations:

(1) Our Sister Forum Extreme .Net Forums has an MS Office Integration .Net Forum. You'll have to register as a member there again (sorry, but it's pretty quick).

(2) This Forum mantains a board for Office Integration Q's that, although Legacy VB6 and VBA based, has an even better chance of giving you a good answer on Q's related to Outlook. Just keep in mind that any answers you get would then have to be *translated* over to .Net... but that should not be too hard...

I hope this helps? (Sorry, I'd help you out myself here, but I'm really just an Excel guy, I don't really know Outlook, sorry...)

-- Mike

Actually, that wouldn't be to difficult. Basically your need to use Outlook to scan new mail. The New Mail event could be used for this.

Scan through the unread emails for messages conforming to your journal or task request email. Perhaps by a certain email subject. for example the subject line being "Automated Task Request". Once such an email is found, you will want the body of the email to contain all the information need to create the Task or Journal Request.
Such as:
Task Subject
Task Body
etc...

You might want to think about placing all of these things inside of tags in your email.
<TaskSubject>This is my task</TaskSubject>
<TaskBody>blah..blah..blah</TaskBody>
<TaskDueDate>9/20/2004</TaskDueDate>
I'd probably send the date as a double rather than a datestring.
9/20/2004 is 38250
Using tags will help in parsing the various parts needed to create the task request
